Audioswift-Your Trackpad As A MIDI Controller


Control · Improve · Create


Divide the trackpad in 1 to 4 virtual sliders and send CC or Pitch Bend MIDI messages. Add expressiveness to virtual instruments or automate plugins parameters easily with a trackpad. Edit photos faster in Lightroom.


Use your trackpad as an XY pad to control several parameters at the same time, using one, two and three fingers configurations. A great MIDI tool for mobile producers and sound designers. 


Control one or two faders at the same time using simple touches. Move the panning, set the send's levels, use your trackpad as a jog wheel, and write automation in a quick and easy way. It's currently supported in Logic Pro, Pro Tools, Ableton Live, Reaper, Cubase and Studio One.


Make quick beats using your trackpad as trigger pads. Play audio clips by tapping your fingers. Up to three fingers can be used at the same time. 


Choose a tonic note and then select a scale. Slide your fingers from left to right to play notes in the selected key. Apply pressure to the trackpad and it will send aftertouch MIDI messages. (Aftertouch requires a trackpad with Force Touch).
